In less than three weeks, Summer will be over. The transition period between Summer and Fall  is usually an exciting time for investors, as they are back from their hard earned vacation and had had time to reflect on their investment strategy.  A few things are awaiting the investors.

First, the positive trends:

  •  After a scary dip in July, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (^DJI) has recovered and  jumped to above the pre-summer levels: 17,780.82 on June 22, to 18,495 on August 10, 2016, after  the dip to

The uncertainties and swings that plagued the stock market since the start of the year have given place to a positive momentum as investors are reviewing their stock portfolio before heading to their well deserved Summer break. As we observed earlier, Summer started with  the US stock market picking up momentum. Economic indicators have, as predicted,  helped: April New Home Sales, April Pending Home Sales , and April Durable Orders and GDP growth all  beat expectations or were close. And now, the job market is heating up, with the employers facing a challenge, good for those seeking jobs: worker shortage. The  persistent weaknesses in the internationa markets have been factored into the market performance:  oil markets, the slowing Chinese economy, the never ending Middle East wars and refugee crisis and the growing uncertainties and sometimes chaos in once promising developing economies, such as Argentina, Brasil, Venezuela, and South Africa, Angola, Saoud Arabia, and Nigeria remain major concerns, all are known factors.  Investors appear to have shrugged off these nuisances along with  the risk from the pending decision by the FED to raise short term interest rates. Result: Since January, Dow Jones Industrial Average (DOJ) has jumped from a low  of  15766,71 to 17,865.34, or  13%.

The year started with  much uncertainties and swings in the stock market. As Summer is about to start, the US stock market has been picking up momentum. The latest news on economic indicators may have helped: April New Home Sales, April Pending Home Sales , and April Durable Orders and GDP growth all  beat expectations or were close.The  persistent weaknesses in the international oil markets, the slowing Chinese economy, the never ending Middle East wars and refugee crisis and the growing uncertainties and sometimes chaos in once promising developing economies, such as Argentina, Brasil, Venezuela, and South Africa, Angola, Saoud Arabia, and Nigeria remain major concerns. However, it appears that, these too have been factored in by savvy investors. Investors also appear to have made a decision that the risk from the pending decision by the FED to raise short term interest rates could be manageable.

Following a rocky start, the US stock market has been picking up momentum lately, despite lingering challenging uncertainties.   First, there are the known persistent weaknesses in the international oil markets, the slowing Chinese economy, and  the never ending Middle East wars. Second, the once promising developing economies, such as Argentina, Brasil, and South Africa continue to show serious shortcoming and those dependent on oil have deteriorated as oil prices plummeted. These include Venezuela, Angola, Saoud Arabia, and Nigeria.

The US stock market is once again in the midst of challenging uncertainties, but also opportunities.   First, there are persistent weaknesses in the internal oil markets.  The slowing Chinese economy remains of  concern, and  the  Middle East wars have intensified.  The recent Federal Reserve Bank decision to raise interest rates appears to be sending both positive vibes and worries in the markets.  The job market continues to improve,  European economies are slowly coming back from a recession. But, at the same time, some once thought promising economies have shown major weaknesses. These include Brazil, Argentina, and South Africa.

The US stock market is experiencing a period of challenges and opportunities.   The challenges appear to come from the slowing Chinese economy,  the  continued Middle East wars, and the declining oil prices.  The opportunities may be found from improving European economies, with the Greek crisis finally seeing the light, the significant restructuring of Google, a major tech player,  and the continued discovery of untapped riches in developing economies, especially Africa.

Over 2014, the US stock market has experienced a period of high market uncertainty and volatility, with the major stock indices  experiencing abrupt declines, followed by rallies.   The uncertainty that started in the first quarter 2014, has continued all the way to December 2014, mostly fueled by major events around the World, positive economic news in the US, and  the positive outlook  from the US Federal Reserve. Some of the major events that created uncertainty include  the Middle East wars, the unresolved Ukraine crisis, the dramatic and never ending decline oil prices, the slowing Chinese economy, the sluggish European economies,  and the Ebola epidemic.  By mid October, the stock market had recorded an unprecedented decline in major indices and had erased almost all the gains accumulated since the beginning of the year.  By End of December 2014, stock had rallied, ofter jumping in a single day, to levels never seen since 2014. Over the year, AroniSmartInvest™ In Action has been  picking a few more promising stocks. Let us recap what stocks had been picked i the second half of 2014 and the rationale for picking the stocks at the time.

b2ap3_thumbnail_GuyScottPresidentZambia.jpgOn Wednesday, October 29, 2014, Zambia’s Vice President, Guy Scott, has been appointed President of Zambia, hence becoming the first post independence African white head of state. He has replaced the late Zambian President Michael Chilufya Sata, following the death of the latter in London on October 28, 2018.

Although his appointment is temporary, the fact that he is white in an African democratic independent country make him a first. The only other white heads of state were either under apartheid in South Africa or during colonial times.
